UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-1720 CEDRICK EURON DRAPER, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. AVIS RENT A CAR SYSTEM, LLC, d/b/a Avis Rent A Car, LLC (Campbell County Virginia), Defendant - Appellee. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Henry E. Hudson, Senior District Judge. (3:18-cv-00188-HEH) Submitted: October 16, 2018 Decided: October 24, 2018 Before AGEE and FLOYD, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Cedrick Euron Draper, Appellant Pro Se. Justin Michael Sizemore, REED SMITH, LLP, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Cedrick Euron Draper appeals the district court’s order dismissing his civil action claiming fraud and breach of contract for failure to state a claim. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Draper’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Draper has forfeited appellate review of the court’s order. See Jackson v. Lightsey, 775 F.3d 170, 177 (4th Cir. 2014) (“The informal brief is an important document; under Fourth Circuit rules, our review is limited to issues preserved in that brief.”). Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s judgment. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED 2
